I love my body pillow. Purchased because I had thoracic outlet syndrome likely due to sleeping on my stomach. This helps me sleep on my side more comfortably. I actually sleep with it upside down so I can use my own head pillow (the top of the U is not comfortable for putting my head on due to the seams). It gets a bit warm but it could be worse. Happy with my purchase.
While the Leachco Back n Belly Chic Contoured Body Pillow is primarily marketed as a maternity pillow, in fact, many of the people who use are not only not pregnant women, but are in fact not even women at all. This large, generously stuffed pillow can help reduce the aches and pains associated with scoliosis, sciatica, chronic back pain, and more. It can also simply prop up a side sleeper who is looking for more comfort, no defined medical condition necessary.

No matter what your natural sleep position tendencies are, as your baby begins to grow you will most likely find yourself having to adjust your comfort to accommodate your changing body. Most women find that a side sleeping position becomes the easiest, and most comfortable, position to rest within- and most pregnancy pillows are constructed to help you rest in such a manner.
Pregnant women tend to have a higher than usual resting body temperature, which is handy in the winter months, however, can mean it’s easy to overheat while sleeping – especially when surrounded by pillows to support our growing bumps. The Purflo pillow is designed with Coolmax technology (a lightweight hypoallergenic material) to prevent you from getting too hot. It’s a simply shaped pillow but we found it to be comfortable and supportive to the bump, back and knees (this style doesn’t offer back support) and notably cooler than some of the other pillows tested. A great buy if you’re struggling in this respect.
The Victorian era roughly covers the years of Queen Victoria's reign to her death in 1901. Women spent a lot of time in the state of pregnancy, giving birth to an average of eight children with five making it through infancy.[2] Queen Victoria herself had nine. Pregnancy was considered a private matter not to be discussed in "polite" conversation. A garment called a "wrapper" worn by women at home before they dressed for the day was well-suited for pregnancy as well since it wrapped around and could be worn loosely or more form-fitting as needed. At that time women were used to wearing corsets and maternity corsets with laces for adjustment were available.[3][4]

A. While wearing the right nursing bra is no guarantee against mastitis, there are some things to avoid that could lead to its development. Underwires are notorious for causing clogged milk ducts, especially under the arm, as they put pressure on ducts and prevent milk from coming out. Once a duct gets clogged, it can become infected and lead to mastitis. Too much compression can also have the same effect.

Maternity clothing is generally worn only during the second and third trimesters, and possibly for several weeks or months after the birth of the baby while a woman regains her pre-pregnancy size. If a woman expects to be pregnant only once or twice, buying maternity clothing that will be worn only for about six months, can be considered expensive.[4] Women who cannot afford or don't want to spend large amounts of money on maternity clothing may choose to just wear either larger, looser clothing or buy secondhand maternity clothes via yard sales and also consignment clothes stores. Also, some products, such as button extenders or Ingrid & Isabel's Bellaband wrap, are intended to work with the woman's non-maternity clothing, to reduce the need for specialized clothing.[4]
Leachco has become a formidable force within the mom’s pillow industry. The company’s Mini Snoogle Body Pillow is likely one of their most impressive offerings. The pillow is slightly smaller than some of the others, but it is still capable of supporting all of the most important body parts. It can be used to target specific parts of the body, including the back, hips, or the knees. Plus, the mini size helps to ensure that the pillow will never get in your way. Additional details about this specific pillow will be provided below.
It may be the priciest pillow we tested, but the creators of the Bbhugme spared no expense when it came to research or high tech design – and it shows. Developed by three female Norwegian chiropractors, their aim was to create a product that would help prevent back or pelvic pain during pregnancy, and neck and shoulder strain when nursing. It uses natural, antibacterial ESP pebbles (a little like a bean-bag) to mould around your body and avoid overheating. Incredibly light and cool, we really like how adaptable this pillow is. It’s a good size and easy to shape and adjust the firmness to your preference by tightening or loosening the outer cover. 
You are probably not going to spend an entire night sleeping on the Cozy Bump Maternity Pillow, as doing so would be something of a balancing act and would require zero position adjustment to boot. But for the pregnant woman looking for temporary relief of lower back pain or who just wants to enjoy the feeling of resting face down for a little while, this unique pregnancy pillow is a great purchase.

While many women will prefer a larger body pillow, others will agree that something smaller is more reasonable. This is why the Leachco Snoogle Mini is truly the perfect size for many pregnant women. While the pillow is very compact, it still offers a sufficient amount of support. Plus, it can be used in various positions to better target certain parts of the body. Plus, the pillow’s size makes it far more convenient than its competitors. The pillow is more portable and can easily be stored in a closet when it is not needed.
Full body pillows are typically 4 to 5 feet in length and can either be used with or without your regular pillow- depending on whether it’s a model that provides flexibility for you to use under your head. These are typically straight in nature or provide some slight curve for better comfort. They usually have a pillowcase that either slips or sips over the pillow itself and is made of polyester with foam bead fill for body contouring.

Health features director Catherine DiBenedetto struggled to get enough sleep when she was pregnant. "I had always been a stomach sleeper, and I just couldn't get comfortable on my side," she recalls. But after investing in this pillow at the seven-month mark, she was finally able to sleep through the night. "I loved its shape because I could wrap my arms around it, put the bottom part between my knees, and nestle my head into the nook at the top," she says. "My body felt totally supported."
First and foremost, you should familiarize yourself with the basic concept of the maternity pillow. Everyone is familiar with the conventional pillow. The pregnant pillow is very similar, but vastly different in terms of design. In general, pillows for pregnant women will be much bigger than their traditional counterparts. They’ll actually wrap around the user’s entire body, so the baby’s weight can be supported. While there are many similarities, each headrest/bolster is unique in its own right. Therefore, it is pertinent to learn a little more about the various characteristics of these products, before attempting to make a purchase.
